Wisconsin- Students who miss school meals due to COVID-19 will still receive food benefits. Students who receive free or reduced lunch or breakfast, but are unable to do so due because of distance learning or needing to stay home for COVID-related reasons, will be able to receive food benefits for those missed days. Previously benefits were sent based upon what the school was doing in terms of distancing learning, but now will be based on a child by child basis.

Lake Vermilion, MN- The Minnesota DNR will be performing creel surveys on Lake Vermilion this winter.

Creel clerks will survey fishermen at random and the DNR is asking for participants full cooperation. The surveys will run through the end of February. This is the first winter survey on Lake Vermilion since 1986. For more information, click here.
